Hub New Music, a “nimble quartet of winds and strings” (NPR), has built a national reputation for commissioning and performing fresh, dazzling, and ambitious contemporary works. Hear the Grammy-nominated group in their hometown for an exciting collaborative program that features an exciting spoken word and electronics collaboration, the world premiere of a work by Marcos Balter, and more. 

The program’s title, to hear the things we cannot see, comes from composer Nina C. Young’s collaboration with Hub New Music and poet Rosie Stockton, whose voice is broken down into its components and woven into the composition almost like another instrument. Stockton’s recordings of their own works unite past and present, and the whole ensemble generates live electronic sounds in real time for a one-of-a-kind concert experience.

And don’t miss a Neighborhood Arts world premiere commission, part of Hub New Music’s tenth anniversary celebration, by composer Marcos Balter, called “the most exciting Brazilian composer of his generation” by O Estado de São Paulo. Balter is known for his vivid, playful, and intricate compositions: he’s going to be a great match for our friends at Hub New Music!

Called “contemporary chamber trailblazers” (The Boston Globe), Hub New Music is a “nimble quartet of winds and strings” (NPR) forging new paths in 21st-century repertoire. The ensemble’s ambitious commissioning projects and “appealing programs” (New Yorker) celebrate the rich diversity of today’s classical music landscape.
